ProductCart Configurator includes all the features that are part of the Standard version of the product. What is unique about Configurator is the fact that it combines a complete e-commerce system with a Web-based product (or service) configurator. Depending on how it is setup by the store administrator, the system allows customers to:
- View a default configuration for a customizable product or service, then purchase the product “as is” or customize it.
- Configure a product with instant price changes and conflict resolutions in Configurator+. Available options may be displayed using drop-downs, radio buttons, or check boxes. Specific instructions can be shown for each category of selectable options, many settings can be configured for each category.
- Save a quote, then edit it, print it in a printer-friendly format, submit it to the merchant for review, or turn it into an order. The store manager can review, edit, and approve submitted quotes.
The process of upgrading a ProductCart Standard store to ProductCart Configurator is very straightforward. Once the upgrade has been purchased, an additional set of files will be added to the store, enabling the Configurator features. The store database is not affected as all ProductCart-powered stores already contain the tables and fields needed by the Configurator system.
